The health ministries of Brazil and France have signed a series of agreements strengthening co-operation in a number of areas, from healthcare management policy to producing HIV/AIDS related products. At the centre of the initiative are France's Pasteur institute and Brazil's Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz), in Rio de Janeiro. One of the agreements will see the creation of an international centre for co-operation on HIV/AIDS, involving also the United Nations AIDS programme.
